Mater Trumpet Coat Stand is a contemporary and sculptural piece of design made by the Danish architect duo Space Copenhagen.
The nine discs in three different sizes are fitted to the stand and positioned at angles suitable for hanging hats, scarves and umbrellas. Trumpet is crafted by the ancient technique of sand casting in a small workshop in Northern India. The raw material is derived from 70 % aluminium waste. Trumpet is flat-packed for ease of labour and transportation.
Space Copenhagen is established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou - both graduated The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture - is known for defying habits and employing a sincere personal vision to their design. The projects Space Copenhagen has turned their hands to include everything from interior design, to furniture and refined objects for everyday use as well as artistic installations and art direction.
Space explains: "Mater offers such a vision-driven optimism in creating in-our-time products that we designers feel a part of a mission. As a designer, you sometimes wonder if we really need more design objects. But with the go-getting spirit at Mater, you are not only sure that your designs will hit the marketplace, you're also confident that they'll make a difference."
